100 Happy Days: Day 66

I've finally finished the current lot of shredding!  It has taken ages, mainly due to the fact that I find the task incredibly boring and I have to keep stopping to prevent the shredder from overheating.  However, the decluttering is progressing and I am feeling much happier because of it.


  1. Do you compost the bits? I've got a pair of shredding scissors so I sit and watch TV to lessen the tedium!

    1. No, it goes to a couple of friends who use it as bedding for their children's hamsters. I haven't really got into composting yet - this is my first year of gardening on my own and I'm still sorting out the basic layout.

  2. I don't like the noise of my shredder, but I love getting a pile done and out the door! I hope you are eventually able to have a compost pile. I was very surprised by how emotionally fulfilled I got by having one - it made me eat healthier foods because, as I was fixing meals, I wanted peels and fruit/vegie debris to throw in it. Crazy I know, but the "full cycle" that comes with composting was very satisfying.
